Winding Invisible Bobbin Thread

yentamomApril 2, 2010


I am nearing the finish-line of my "never-ending" Roman shade. I will be sewing horizontal lines on the lining side and wanted to use invisible thread in my bobbin for the decorator fabric side. Each time I try to wind my bobbin with the invisible thread, it snaps.

Does anyone know the trick to winding invisible thread?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The tension spring on your bobbin winder must be tight and that's why the invisible thread stretches and snaps.

Try winding the bobbin without putting it through the spring. Instead of putting it in the spring. just go around the post at the bottom. I'm only guessing but it might work.
